The Dark Ages are back!. ... Today's world wide social and economic crisis brings back to thefore the fundamental questions formulated by Gauguin which the bullshit art-boom, had tried to erase: FROM WHERE WE COME? WHERE WE GO? WHERE WE ARE? Those artists and/or art-gangsters, operators and speculators who had "forgotten" that art was about that (and not about commercial success, cultural politics and Hollywoodian glitz) are now suffering the results of their own poison. In substance, nothing much has changed since Gauguin: are we objects or subjects of our own history?-J.-J. Lebel, 1995 ►more

Between "Howl" and this pile of plaster is the history of NO!art, a provocative group of artists from the Lower Hast Side of the early sixties, which the NGBK has extensively reappraised as a retrospective. The development of the group is shown in the Gallery on Oranienstrasse, while the Haus am Kleistpark is dedicated exclusively to Boris Lurie. Today, the 71-year-old Lurie manages the estate of a movement that has been all but forgotten alongside the incomparably smarter Pop Art. ►more
NO SHOW with Rocco Armento, Stanley Fisher, Ester Gilman, Sam Goodman, Gloria Graves, Allan Kaprow, Yayoi Kusama, Boris Lurie, Jean-Jacques Lebel, Michelle Stuart, Richard Tyler | GALLERY GERTRUDE STEIN | New York | 1963
SEYMOUR KRIM: NO Show at Gertrude Stein Gallery | l was kindly asked to write this introduction to the NO!show for two oddly pertinent reasons: l am the editor of "The Beats", an anthology of Beat Generation prose and poetry, and the editorial director of "Nugget" magazine. If you couple the outcries of Beat literature with the direct erotic charge of a magazine like "Nugget", you have a unique marriage of elements which could not have been dreamed up before this specific, cockeyed period we're living in. ►more

A new art show at the March Gallery presents an iconoclastic scouring of our world gone mad. A satirical declaration of independence against uncommitted and the shallow common place. It is an exciting show, a show in which Involvement and Innocence become the sacred symbols of survival. The show includes oil paintings, collages, drawings, and mixed media. ►more

THE VULGAR SHOW with Boris Lurie, John Fisher, Stanley Fisher and Sam Goodman
MARCH GALLERY | 95 E 10th Street | New York
This one statement by the MARCH GROUP among a thousand countless uncalled for unfounded statements that it makes on subjects like art it knows nothing about.
Art has ended. The world and being collapsed. Who are you? In this void, invisibility is seminal. Drink emptiness. Drink brinks. Swill on fathoms. Who are we? The earth is a line drive single to the slaughterhouse. How that spinal column of A-bombs sprawled among letter boxes and limbs delights the indoor eye, swindles passports into paradise. Vice. Vulgar? ►more
